This review is from: A Day In The Life Of Death: A Behind The Scenes Look At The Mortuary Business (Paperback)
Like a trusted friend, Ryan M. Lee leads us into a world few have imagined entering in his first book, "A Day in the Life of Death." Lee, engaging, terrifically honest, and compassionate, highlights the funeral industry's strengths and flaws as well as our own vulnerabilities when faced with vital decisions about the disposal of our loved ones' remains. Having helped us gain a degree of emotional detachment from our pain and loss, we are better able to make the most caring choices for our deceased, while making the most sensible and financially responsible choices for ourselves. Handling issues from the macabre to the mirthful with sensitivity, tact, and most of all, humor, Lee helps separate the ache of bereavement from the business of death. This work answers hundreds of questions we never knew we had about the death care industry, providing an expert's view and a place to start when we face the inevitable process of burying our dead.
